Book Summary:

Looking at infrastructure in the context of project development, this book examines existing infrastructure—how it was built and paid for—to illuminate the tools being used to fund and finance these investments as well as the shape they are taking. Eight case studies that highlight the infrastructure for redevelopment efforts from across the country are featured. As American suburbs build in more compact ways—with higher-density development clustered in nodes or along corridors, and with increasing options for getting around without a car—reworking or rethinking infrastructure can be essential and this book fills that information gap.
